Testimonials

“I recently purchased a beautiful fingerboard from you and now I am thinking of grabbing fretwire from you as well. Unfortunately I'm cheap and lazy and find myself here asking if it is possible to pay more to have your fretwire radiused before it is sent? You guys would be the coolest ever. No matter what the outcome, I will be sending more business your way from here in Maine. Hoping for good news! Thank you!"

Sinker Honduran Mahogany

BSSinkerMahoganyBSHM1SSSK600Swietenia macrophylla 

"Sinker" refers to woods that have spent some time submerged in water. This particular Mahogany was salvaged from the rivers of Belize, where the logs were floated from mill to port around one hundred years ago. The larger and heavier logs sank and remained submerged and preserved until 2008. Being underwater allows some mineral content to penetrate the wood. This causes it to be slightly heavier and harder. The process has a strong, beneficial effect on the tap-tone of the wood, which was of rare quality to begin with, being 'old growth' and hundreds of years old.
